Former Ghana international, Tony Baffoe, has insisted he has absolute believe in the technical team of the Black Stars led by Otto Addo.

The technical team has come under intense pressure after the games against Brazil and Nicaragua in the friendlies last month.

The Black Stars suffered a defeat against the five times champions before recording a 1-0 win over the 139th-ranked Central American side.

Several Ghanaians have called for the sacking of Otto Addo ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar,.

However, Baffoe, who is a former CAF Deputy General Secretary, says the technical team headed by Otto Addo will perform in Qatar later this year.

“It getting bigger and bigger and the team behind the technical team.

“I remember in 2014 in Brazil Germany went to the World Cup with over 50 technical team members and they won the trophy.

“I am very happy the Ghana Football Association [GFA] has allowed Otto Addo to operate and I am happy with the work done so far and I believe in them,” he added.
